Tottenham Hotspur only managed to play a handful of games in their new stadium last season due to building delays, but they will be looking forward to their first full campaign in the ground.

Inside Housing now report that Spurs have won a planning appeal after a long dispute with Haringey Council, with the club planning to build 330 new homes near the stadium.

These homes will be built on the Good Yards site, and 35% of them will be affordable, a figure that could rise to 40% if the club receive a grant from the Mayor of London.

The build would also include retail space, office space, and a new public space in front of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

There was an initial disagreement between Spurs and the council over the application timeline, site access arrangements, and a section 106 agreement.

All disputes have now been settled and Spurs will be allowed to continue their development of the North London area

A Tottenham spokesperson told Inside Housing: “This decision enables the club to continue what it has been doing for many years, which alongside its investment in the new stadium, is to continue the uplift of the area and the delivery of affordable housing for local people.

“We have already delivered schemes such as Berland Court (100% affordable), Cannon Road (100% affordable) and 500 White Hart Lane (25% affordable).”
